Tapping into Self-Compassion to Help Ease Everyday Suffering

Tapping into Self-Compassion to Help Ease Everyday Suffering | Self-Help | Scoop.it
There is never a good reason not to treat yourself with kindness and compassion.

 

When I posted my last article, “8 Things I Miss as a Result of Chronic Pain and Illness,” I wasn’t planning to write a follow-up. But it became clear within hours of posting it that the piece had struck a chord with many readers. People began sharing the many losses they were feeling as the result of their health limitations. Others said they cried as they read my list because it tapped into their own feelings of deep loss.

 

By the end of the day, I began to feel that the piece had left some people feeling worse than they had before reading it, even though my intent was to acknowledge how things are for me in a way that I thought might help all of us accept our life as it is.

This Self-healing Concrete Repairs Itself with the Help of Bacteria

This Self-healing Concrete Repairs Itself with the Help of Bacteria | Self-Help | Scoop.it

Concrete cracks for many reasons: just for starters, the heating and cooling of changing seasons make it expand and contract, and the stress produced as the freshly poured goo dries and shrinks in volume, pulling against its underlying metal supports, can also cause cracks. But Dutch researchers are testing a new way to deal with the problem of cracking concrete: bacteria that, when exposed to water, form limestone.


The concrete mix they’ve developed contains small ceramic pods filled with dormant spores of the bacteria and nutrients (calcium lactate) to feed them. In solid concrete slabs, these spores remain dormant, but when the concrete cracks and water seeps into the ceramic pods, the bacteria spring into action, using the calcium lactate to form calcite, one of the two primary components of limestone, which fills the crack. In the lab, the bacteria can fill cracks up to 0.5 millimeters wide, microbiologist Henk Jonkers told the BBC News. Now the researchers want to test their self-healing concrete outside for a few years before putting it on the market.


And they have some serious obstacles to work out, since in a recent paper, from 2010, they note that spores mixed with wet concrete and left to dry only lasted four months. Hopefully, they last longer when coated with ceramic, but there don’t seem to be any reports to that effect out. For now, best just not to step on the cracks.

A Wealth of Words: Vocabulary and Opportunity

A Wealth of Words: Vocabulary and Opportunity | Self-Help | Scoop.it

by E. D. Hirsch, Jr.,

City Journal

WInter 2013

 

The key to increasing upward mobility is expanding vocabulary.

 

So there’s a positive correlation between a student’s vocabulary size in grade 12, the likelihood that she will graduate from college, and her future level of income. The reason is clear: vocabulary size is a convenient proxy for a whole range of educational attainments and abilities—not just skill in reading, writing, listening, and speaking but also general knowledge of science, history, and the arts. If we want to reduce economic inequality in America, a good place to start is the language-arts classroom.
